    Nono, I'm not cutting my losses and the problem persists on new user accounts so it's not specific to my account.

    Exactly, as the problem exists on new accounts as well you have a general problem.

    Of course, you're free to research a solution, and maybe someone else here may be able to help. Good luck!

    Ok weird, with the help of the narrator, I've attempted a system restore from windows 10, normally booted and .... it somehow worked. Didn't think it would since even a system restore from the recovery environment didn't work.

    All text are back and the fixes made by "Permissions Time Machine" are still applied (search indexer service seem to start now)

    ****ing finally..... now time to get a new hdd to make an image and thanks to everyone who tried to help

    This problem happened to me when I was trying to change the permission/security settings for my C drive. I was trying to change this so I could save files into it. See:
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...a51d15a?auth=1

    However, when this was done the missing text problem occurred. So the problem is related to the permissions of something in the root drive. Anyway, I followed Skodd's approach to solving this problem and it worked. Once the system restore was started, it took a very long time to proceed (I estimated just under an hour) so please be patient!

    For the benefit of future people who might have this problem, what is needed is some pictures of the various menus so users can work out what the Narrator is saying. You can find that here:
